The Benefits of Massage

Massage is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension. ROAM recently partnered with t spheres to give BWI travelers access to a compact self-massage tool that will fit in their carry-ons. These aromatherapy scented, rubber massage balls help target trigger points for a mini massage that you can do in your plane seat. For other ideas on how to use them check out a couple of their videos here.

According to the Mayo Clinic more research is needed to confirm additional benefits of massage but some studies have found it to be helpful for:

  • Anxiety reduction

  • Immunity boost (increases white blood cell count)

  • Digestive disorders

  • Enhance exercise performance

  • Fibromyalgia pain relief

  • Tension headache relief

  • Lower-back pain management

  • Better sleep

  • Insomnia related to stress

  • Myofascial pain syndrome

  • Soft tissue strains and injuries

  • Sports injuries

  • Lower blood pressure

  • Increase range of motion
